After finishing the Medallion Project, I’ve got an itch to stitch something completely different, to get back to basics, to explore several projects that have been brewing in my brain.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work that way, with “next up” embroidery projects.
I know! I know! The picture above looks familiar, doesn’t it? We’ve seen these goldwork & silk Tudor-style roses before – to the point of Tudor Rose Gluttony.
I hope you’re not cringing too much. I’m going to be tackling the larger of the two roses above over the next couple weeks. I need to do the large one. I need to work it out, to make it a bit of a sampler, to test different ideas with it.
I Needs Must Do This!
And it starts today.
But never fear – there’s a bit more in the works, too.
With a slight nod to the Great Gods of Organization in the Sky, I’m going to be working on a few other embroidery projects at the same time. I think there’s some sort of metaphysical principle that states that a thing cannot be and not be at the same time, in the same respect, that it is impossible to be in two places at once, or do two things at once. In fact, psychologically speaking, it is impossible for the brain to pay attention (according to the true definition of attention) to two things at once. And that just bungles up every notion of multi-tasking, doesn’t it?
But I’m going to defy such principles! I’ve made up a jolly-complicated, color-coded schedule that will allow me to be a bit more productive, now that the Big Project is completely over. And you, my friends, will be the first to see the fruits of my labor.
Unless, of course, I scratch the schedule and head to Tahiti.
It’s always a possibility!
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, enjoy your day!
